A simple weeknight pasta dinner with an interesting twist, this spaghetti has Crispy Chili Crisp Breadcrumbs stirred in and served on top. So delicious and unique flavors!


8-10 ounces spaghetti, cooked al dente
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 1/2 cups fresh breadcrumbs (about 3 pieces of bread)
2 tablespoons chili crisp
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tablespoon minced parsley
2 tablespoons butter
Fresh parmesan, garnish


  1. To make breadcrumbs, place 3-4 pieces of stale bread on a baking sheet and bake for 300˚F until bread is crispy, maybe 7-8 minutes. Then let bread dry and crumble into crumbs. You can use storebought breadcrumbs, but fresh is best for this dish.
  2. Cook spaghetti in salted water until it’s al dente, 8-10 minutes.
  3. In a small skillet, add 2 tablespoons olive oil to a small skillet over medium heat. Add breadcrumbs, chili crisp, garlic, and parsley. Stir together and cook, stirring occasionally, until breadcrumbs are fragrant and crispy. Remove from heat.
  4. When spaghetti is done, melt butter in a large skillet. Remove spaghetti from the pot with tongs and add to skillet with melted butter. Toss together with half of the crispy breadcrumbs over low heat.
  5. Serve spaghetti immediately with extra crispy breadcrumbs and fresh parmesan on top of the spaghetti.
